Loading the Bases for UFO Sightings

In past hubs, I have mentioned fairly regularly that, rather than a Wednesday Phenomena causing more sightings than usual on a Wednesday, I am convinced that there are UFO day cycles that peak at various days of the week due to them being the result of periods or cycles that are either a bit more or less than a full week in length. In an attempt to validate them, I have actively tried to determine when all three might peak together. Recently I was able to pin down just when all three proposed UFO Day Cycles: A, B & C (presently estimated to be 7.1436 days, 7.0076 days, and 6.76 days in length) would peak in unison. I have discovered an 8058 day or 22 year and 22 day main cycle and two sub-cycles within that period of 4779 days or 13 years and 30 days and a period of 3279 days or 8 days shy of 9 years. Interestingly, there is another cycle between the two subcycles of 1500 days exactly but it is only accurate for two of the three peaks (with Day Cycle C being about 21 hours off in it's peak when compared to the other two). More accurate sub-cycles of short duration are 378.5 days and multiples of that (757, 1135.5, 1514, and 1892.5 days) following one of the triple peak day cycle days given in the chart below. The most reliable period or best refined at this point is the longest one (UFO Day Cycle A).

Using the three main cycles and a starting date of 4/25/1977, when there were two dramatic UFO encounters in Brazil and it is believed that all three Day Cycles peaked together, I traced backwards and forwards to determine similar dates before and after that date.

22 Years +22 Days............ 9 Years -8 Days.................... 13 Years +30 Days
Before/After 4/25/77.......... Before Left Column Date...... Before Left Column Date

2021/06/10........................ 2012/06/17........................... 2008/05/10

1999/05/18........................ 1990/05/26........................... 1986/04/17

1977/04/25........................ 1968/05/03........................... 1964/03/25

1955/04/03........................ 1946/04/11............................ 1942/03/03


As can be seen above, 6/17/2012 is the next such date to come up on the horizon. During such a peak, sightings can be more numerous, especially in the high strangeness/credibility kind or landings, close encounters, and daylight sightings. The peaks extend for one day before and after the peak and for similar three day periods a week before and after the peaks. As an example of this, there were no UFO sightings found for the date 3/3/1942, but if you add a day and then subtract a week you get 2/25/1942 which was the "Battle of Los Angeles" UFO encounter (which actually occurred mostly over Long Beach, California). Interestingly there were no UFO sightings located for the date 3/11/1933, but there was a 6.4 magnitude earthquake in Long Beach, California that day that caused the death of 120 people.

Too Peculiar to Be Believed?

Another interesting date is 3/25/1964. On this day, as the story goes (dismissed by most serious UFO researchers as a hoax) an alien saucer landed at Holloman AFB in New Mexico, big nosed aliens then exited the vehicle and met with military officials. Since this date just happened to fit in with a triple peak of my proposed day cycles I have decided to look into this matter in more detail. It would appear that serious UFO researchers have been baited by government agencies with this reported encounter in the past. My impression is that there may be something to the event but, in a concerted effort by clandestine government operations, the waters have been muddied surrounding it so as to both discredit it and any UFO researcher who would dare to get near it. Ufologists who have gotten too close to the story include Linda Moulton Howe and Robert Emenegger. There may actually have been more than one landing of alien saucers at Holloman. One story has then President Eisenhower meeting with aliens who landed in at least one of two craft there on 2/9/1955. The 3/25/1964 date for the landing of one of three craft seems to be accurate although Emenegger was told by his sources that it occurred in May, 1971.

In May 1968, from the 2nd through the 5th (surrounding a 5/3/1968 triple UFO Day Cycle peak date) there were many interesting UFO sightings throughout the world. There was a higher percentage of unexplainable events than usual during this period. While 1968 was a big year for UFOs, 1986 was not and thus there are only a few noteworthy European reports for the triple UFO Day Cycle peak date of 4/17/86.

The day before the next triple UFO Day Cycle peak day or on May 25, 1990, there is a report of a huge disc shaped UFO over a military area in Mary, Turkey. The object reportedly beamed damaging rays at missiles and two jets that apparently were trying to pursue it (from Timothy Good's book Alien Update).

A second-hand report revealed by Peter Davenport at the National UFO Reporting Center is of a sighting that occurred on 5/18/1999 near Satellite Beach, Florida's Patrick AFB. An oval object was observed in the area and several planes were dispatched from the air base to pursue it.

More than usual daylight sightings occurred on the next triple peak date of 5/10/2008 in Australia, the US, and Germany (per the National UFO Reporting Center). Shortly, on 6/17/2012, another triple UFO Cycle Day peak will occur. As I state earlier, this should bring more rare type or stranger than usual sightings beginning on 6/9 (a week and a day before the peak) to 6/11, cresting on 6/16 to 6/18, and ending the period on 6/23 to 6/25. The best days of each 3 day groups are expected to be the central days and each day following those (6/10-11, 6/17-18, and 6/24-25).

    Thanks for your comment Robert,

    I have considered the alternate theory of UFOs as living things and I say why not? If they originate from a race far beyond us in say not only development, but in dimensions as well, who's to say they are not the entities themselves..

    My triple peaks relate to another of my earlier hubs that you can find here:

    In a thumbnail, I propose that a large number of UFOs are from another time but not necessarily another place. They could originate from our planet but from a different time and likely another dimension as well. The three cycles all relate to how a year was once shorter than it is now and will be longer in the future. The three cycles are similar in time to our present week but vary depending on the number of hundreds or thousands of years from now the visitors originate from (who operate on a week of a slightly different length). These cycles don't account for every sighting but I think relate to flaps that are the result of visits to our time from key periods in our past and future.

    There is also a newly discovered 26 day cycle that might relate to either a lunar cycle of the future or a solar cycle of the past. Interestingly, all four cycles (if my theory holds true) should peak together between July 7th and 8th of 2013 (the last time that is estimated to have happened was on March 23rd, 1974 in western Europe). You can read about that in this hub:

    Thanks again for sharing your views, Joe

    A very well-written and informative resource on something I had never considered, this three day cycle.

    I'll tell you something that irritates some Ufologists, but I think a great number of what we see or have reports of them being see are not crafts with creatures in them but actual creatures themselves. The ones that are all up in the thunderstorms? I really do wonder if they're not a type of extremophile, and I think they might also be responsible for the "morphing" videos of "something" morphing to a plane and back and forth before settling to look like a jet-liner.

    Then again... in this day and age, who knows, right? It may (or probably) will pan out to be "all of the above" and "none of the above" as only the UFO Phenomenon can. I have an article almost completed on this subject, and maybe HubPages is the place to put it. It's interesting research, and I'm not all out alone on branch; there are some biologists and metaphysicists who have written about it (so at least I have sources), but what do you think of that possibility? Or do you even consider it a possibility? I'd love to know your two cents. :)

    How intriguing with the Battle of L.A. and your cycles Joseph. Seen footage of W.C. Fields doing a scene for a movie when the earthquake hit in Mar of '33. That clips interesting in itself. And yes, agree, if there was a landing/meeting at Holloman one can bet the farm the waters have been muddied. Great info; and the video was a treat too as I didn't know the Emenegger story too well. Kafka play for real.

    Thanks Tammy, As armchair ufologists go I guess I'm pretty good.. at least unique! I was happy to find such great videos related to the Holloman AFB landing/alien encounter of 3/25/1964; glad I can share it here. Also, noticed after writing my hub that that event was not only on a triple peak of the three UFO Day Cycles but also two days after when I have estimated that the 3.19 year (1,165 day) UFO Crash Cycle peaked as well! In other words if something spectacular related to UFOs or Flying Saucers/aliens didn't occur then, it sure should have!

    Wow.. You are our hubpages expert on UFO's. If people did this research and watched the You Tube videos, I think they would be quite alarmed. Thanks for keeping us informed!
